As we use more lures from different sources, over time we can't help but find certain lures that outperform - even those in the same design category. What this says to me is that
fish are picky at times and only certain things about a lure will provoke them to strike. As you try different lures and find some that do far better, the reason they do better comes down to
lure action which is everything and is dependent on a lure's characteristics]. Find a good action based on a particular combination of shape, size, weight, etc. as well as a presentation/ retrieve that makes it work and that's all I need to value a lure superior !

What makes a lure good is when you put 16 fish in the boat to your buddies 2 and you don't have anymore to share, and he cusses you each time you hollar "fish on"

A good rule of angling philosophy is not to interfere with another fisherman's ways of being happy, unless you want to be hated.

Even better is when you let your buddy have the same lure you have and you catch 16 to his 2! cheers

I write my own posts based on experience and making/ catching fish on some of my own lures.

???

I came up with these idea this morning. They are a continuation of similar posts I've made on TFF about lure design and color with many photo examples.

So where can I read the rest of them? Or is this a work in progress?
